HELP SAVE RIZANA NAFEEK
Rizana Nafeek is a young Sri Lankan immigrant maid who has been sentenced to be beheaded in Saudi Arabia.
She was left in charge of a baby, who choked to death, and Rizana was accused of murder.
Rizana was 17 at the time, couldn't speak the language & had an unfair trial...
Please write to His Royal Highness King Abdullah, seeking a pardon on behalf of Rizana Nafeek:

"The death of a baby is one of the most heartbreaking and tragic experiences for anyone to go through. It is easy to want to blame someone.
To have a baby die in your arms is also traumatic for anyone of any age, especially a young girl, alone and far from home, without any support. And then to be blamed. And sentenced to death. This is beyond anything imaginable.
My heart goes out to the family whose baby died and my heart cries for Rizana. I implore the baby's father and His Majesty King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud to have compassion for Rizana Nafeek. As the only two people who have the power to save her, I appeal to them to act humanely and let Rizana return home to her family, whose hearts are also bleeding for the loss of their child."
